Five For Friday~Family Style!

I am linking up with Doodle Bug's weekly Five for Friday Linky.   This week my Five for Friday is all about family.  I recently returned from a cruise with my mom, step-dad, brother and sisters.  My brother planned the trip as a way to thank my mom for all she has done for her children.  She will be 89 years old in October and up until recently hasn't slowed down one bit.  It was so nice to see her being pampered.  She deserves it.

My mom, step-dad and her children.  The empty chair represents my oldest brother who passed away 4 years ago from cancer.  The hardest thing I ever had to watch was my mom bury her first born.  Jim was there on the cruise with us in spirit.  Everyone felt his presence.
Random pictures from our cruise.  It was amazing!!!
I love my family and feel blessed to be a part of a greater spirit of love and compassion.  Tell your loved ones how much they mean to you!
Thanks for reading!  Have a great day.  :)
